My beloved Masters, Fathers, Mothers, Brothers, Sisters, and Friends in Christ,
I commit sins every day, all day long. In the six months since Orthodoxy in Dialogue went to press, I have offended very many people in very many ways. I also commit countless sins against the people in my personal life.
Forgive me, a sinner, and pray that the Lord our God may forgive me.
Your unworthy brother and fellow servant of Christ,
